I've been going to TJ Rockwell's for many years and never had a bad meal or a bad experience. You get a good meal at a good price and they have a fairly extensive beer list as well. Give them a try if you're in the area.

Can get a bit crowded at times. Food is good and a good selection of beer is available. If you like you can get a sampler tray of beer. Locations are a bit off the main drags so you may need your GPS but worth the drive. Both locations have an outdoor deck or summer.

This is an out of the way kind of place. When I got into the parking lot and saw how full it was I thought I was doomed. The restaurant is huge!! I had the French onion soup and the fish and chips. Huge piece of fish was delicious. The French fries were crisp and hot. I will certainly return... More

We stumbled on this place when searching for a place to eat near Dillsburg, PA. I have to say, it was really nice. We had the reuben sandwich, buffalo chicken sandwich and a chopped salad. All were delicious. I would go back there again. Our waitress had been serving there since it opened, she was great. Very friendly and gave... More

TJ Rockwells has a great selection of food and beer. They have everything from salads and soups to burgers and seafood. The cuisine is excellent and the bar is cozy especially in the winter when they have the fireplace going. This is also an excellent place in the summer to hang out on the patio.

We have eaten here 2 times and enjoy the selections, They always seem to have a good crowd and the food is very good. One thing - the fish & chips is more of a fish plate, It is not finger food, but it is still very good,

A group that I'm associated with periodically meets at T.J. Rockwell's, otherwise I would not return. When I do go, I feel sick. Everything I've ever ordered there is loaded with too much sodium and/or additives. If you like salty food and additives don't bother you, you'll probably like it. The general decor is nice.

Thank Michael R
